Illustrates how kinetic energy is transferred from one body to another through elastic collisions. Defines concepts concerning stored energy, elastic, collision, and potential energy. For more info on PSSC, its history, and films, visit http://www.afana.org/psscfilms.htm

Conservation of mechanical energy
Excellent program. Uses simple experimentation to demonstrate the conservation of mechanical energy in an elastic interaction and shows the conversion of kinetic energy to potential energy by a force ( magnetic ) that depends on position and thus leads to the concept of a conservative force.
